Paul Reynolds is a technical specialist in Internet based mobile telecommunications and a Visiting Professor of Mobile Telecommunications at the University of Plymouth. Prior to that, as Head of Research for Orange UK, he led all their 3rd and 4th generation mobile telecommunications research programmes. Before that he was an advisor to the BT Board. Among other things, he has designed mobile networks for eight countries, been the program chairman of international conferences, has chaired sessions at two European Union Mobile Communication Summits, and, is an expert auditor for the European Commission.

In 1994 he was elected as a Fellow of the Institution of Electrical Engineers for his contributions within the field of mobile telecommunications.

He was the technical leader of the Mobile Wireless Internet Forum and is recognised as an expert in ‘mobilising the Internet’. He has been ‘Technical Leader’ of two European Union research projects, leading teams of industrial and academic experts. He was, for three years, the chairman of EU’s Group responsible for leadership of Europe wide 3G mobile telecommunication trials. He has chaired a number of international conferences on telecommunications. He is a technical specialist in telecommunication architecture, mobile network design, and the use of distributed processing within telecommunication networks. He is a European Commission ‘Technical Auditor’ for the evaluation and redirection of EU sponsored telecommunication research projects.

 He has had a sustained relationship with academic institutions since graduation. He was a ‘Visiting Tutor’ at NIDA University, Thailand and has been a ‘Visiting Lecturer’ on the Communication Engineering BSc course, University of Plymouth, and, lectures on their MSc course in Service Engineering. He has also developed and taught courses on digital data services for BT. He has a Doctorate entitled "An Expert System Approach to Telecommunication Network Design". His research activities have resulted in the publication of numerous papers presenting original results and patents. He has successfully supervised twelve Doctorate and twelve Master Research Assistants to completion and is an examiner for MPhil and PhD candidates. He has helped in the design of MSc courses and been involved in their defence at external validation exercises.
